In a curios programming decision that will almost surely come back to bite them, the E! channel will broadcast the season two finale of Total Divas tonight (Sun., June 1, 2014) at 9 p.m. ET. Yes, that's right in the thick of the WWE Payback pay-per-view (PPV) taking place in Chicago, Illinois.
To make matters worse, Total Divas actually had a big draw for tonight's show: Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella's wedding.
Wedding's are always strong ratings draws and one of the main characters of the show, Brie, marrying the current WWE world heavyweight champion, Bryan, likely would have done a great number had it been scheduled a week ago or a week from now.
Instead, WWE will hurt it with competition from itself.
There's still a big audience for the reality show, so expect a decent number come tomorrow. It just won't be anywhere near where it could have been.
And, of course, if you decide to watch Payback tonight, we'll have the complete episode playlist once the show airs.
